Eagle To Release 9 Hours Of Rory Gallagher August 7 - Late Irish Guitar Legend Gets 3DVD Boxed Set

New York, NY (July 23, 2007) —Eagle Vision will release a precedent-setting boxed set of Rory Gallagher—Live At Rockpalast: 5 Concerts 1976-1990—on August 7 that contains nine hours of footage on three DVDs. Gallagher (1948-1995) scaled international heights of electric blues fame when he married hard rock to urban blues in the course of a brilliant career that tragically ended at age 47 from complications of liver surgery. 

Starting with power trio Taste in 1969 London, his fetish for American blues artists like Buddy Guy, Freddie King, Albert King, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker turned into an obsession. Three Taste albums later, he ventured solo in 1971 to fully explore his blues fascination. Fourteen albums later, he was hailed as one of the finest living practitioners of the art form. He was so respected that two of his heroes, Muddy Waters and Albert King, asked him to record with them and he did on Waters’ The London Sessions and King’s Live, where he proved himself an exemplary blues sideman. 

These three discs show Gallagher at the height of his artistic powers on a series of German television shows between ’76 and ’90.
